Winner of Phuket Red Cross top prize steps forward at last

PHUKET: The top prize winner of the Phuket Red Cross lucky draw didn’t know for several days that he had won because he didn’t check his tickets.

“I never expected to win,” said Jittipong Sungthong, 34, a science and technology teacher at Phuket Rajabhat University.

“I buy these tickets every year to show my support for the Red Cross. This year, I bought a book of 10 tickets. I didn’t bother to check them until I heard that the winner hadn’t come forward. Then I looked at the numbers and realized that I’d won.”

“I am so happy. I plan to use the money to further my education or maybe start a small business for my family.”

Mr Jittipong received his prize, 750,000 baht worth of gold, from Phuket Governor Maitri Inthusut and Phuket Red Cross President Pawinee Inthusut at the governor’s mansion yesterday morning.

The second-place prize of 375,000 baht worth of gold was awarded to Somchai Thopsungnern, 50, a car equipment salesman.

The third prize of 187,000 baht worth of gold was given to Aumphan Jampathong, 53, a housekeeper at Kata Beach Resort and Spa.

Mrs Pawinee expressed her thanks to all those who had supported the fair.

Those lucky draw winners who have yet to claim their prizes may do so by going to the Phuket Provincial Red Cross office in Phuket Provincial Hall or any District Office.

After February 28 unclaimed prizes will be donated to the Red Cross.
